Visit at the Danish museum Frilandsmuseet (outdoormuseeum).
A day with my family, and some fast fotos of the details and furniture we passed.
The museum are a big area, where there are collected houses from all over Denmark, the houses are moved there, brik by brick, to preserve our coltural treasures, and to make it possible for people to come there and experience the athmosphere in and arround these houses. Even the landscape arround the haouses are shaped to reprecent the area as much as possible.
There are all kinds of houses, also a old blacksmith or a inn. All the houses has original interior from the given period, and the gardens arround have seeds from the period to. So this gives you a unique chance, to walk in time and history, arround Denmark, and some of the places we used to rule.
I will not go to much into details, since I took these photos only for me, but thought it might be interesting for some LJ’s but you are welcome to ask questions.

Lucky again, first of all to meet and talk to this wonderful, and beautiful woman, she was part of a team, that was baking bread in a owen in the ground.
